On December 4th, 2015, our Governance changed hands, (as it always does just before the holidays,) and we were pleased to welcome our new Executive Officers and Board of Governors for the 2016 term! (see the full list here)
Tomorrow – Wednesday, February 10th – marks the first full Executive meeting of the year, so we thought it would be a good time to ‘officially’ introduce you to our awesome new President, Aseem Dosanjh!
Aseem, son of former BC premier, Ujjal Dosanjh, is a fun-loving, dedicated guy, full of character and focus – not to mention many years of experience as a lawyer – and we’re looking forward to working with him throughout this year on all of our upcoming committee projects, initiatives and campaigns!
Thanks to Past-President, Krista Simon for an excellent year in 2015 and we look forward to seeing what 2016 has in store! I imagine it will definitely be unique.
For a tiny glimpse into the brain of a madman (stated with respect and love, of course,) here are a few questions we had him answer for us…
Q & A with TLABC President, Aseem Dosanjh:
Q: What is your favourite colour?
A: Blue – a shade somewhere in between Canuck blue and North Carolina tarheel blue.
Q: Do you have a favourite band?
A: Favourite rapper – 2pac; Favourite rock song – Stairway to heaven; Favourite musician – Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
Q: Do you have any pets?
A: Have had many dogs…. But now I stick to goldfish – easier to manage with a busy practice and home life.
Q: What is your dream travel destination, or favourite place you’ve already been?
A: Anywhere with a beach, sunshine, and good music…. But when all else fails — West Coast Mexico – Puerto Vallarta or Cabo
Q: What do you like to do to unwind outside of work?
A: Any kind of hockey (ice or ball) but summers are heavily influenced by and dedicated to perfecting my golf game, all in an effort to one day overthrow Anu Khanna, (who hails from the killer Khanna tribe in India.)

A: I am a lawyer?????
Q: When did you realize that being President of TLABC was at the top of your bucket list?
A: I am the President???

Q: What is one thing you hope to achieve this year as President of TLABC?
A: Figure out how to achieve world peace, but while I’m working on that, try to complete my term and make some positive impacts upon the profession and the work we do.
